More of the same (i.e. a GIVEAWAY for YOU)

You guys are awesome, thank you. This awkward hug is for all of you. Just because.

I did a googie search for "awkward bear hug" and it was less satisfying than I hoped. But now I am waiting for an opportunity to use this picture:

Sally, there are no dumplings left for lunch:

Sally, Ruby drew on your immaculate white mac keyboard with purple crayon (true story):

You get the idea.

I also wanted to tell you the details of Georgie Love's NEW GIVEAWAY (one of many to come at the moment, phew). There is BEAUTIFUL new jewellery on Georgie Love from Velveteen Jewellery Design. Pick your favourite piece from the entire Velveteen range, blog or tweet it before 30/04/10 (with a link so I can see!) and IT SHALL BE YOURS. Well, possibly, IF THE FATES ALLOW me to pick your name out of a hat, and I am sorry to say that I don't have an inside deal with the fates, because if I did then I would probably be FAR more successful, RICH and BETTER DRESSED than I am now. Today I look like I pulled clothes out of a random hobo bin and put them on, thus is the pitfall of getting dressed in the dark.

I have a headcold (THANKS GERMY BABY) and I can barely hold my head up, let alone make sense.


(ps: I got an offer to receive and review or giveaway a free rug on the blog, which I found quite odd. Would you accept something just because it was free, or would you turn it down because it was completely random and probably irrelevant to handmade fans and people who hang out with this blog?

ADVERTISERS TAKE NOTE things I will happily review, yep:
1. cookies
2. shoes (size 9 pls)
3. chocolates
4. doggy treats and accessories
5. new Mac computers
6. A big new car
7. cupcakes
8. super-cool kids clothing
9. super-cool lady clothing
10. cups of tea

(pps: I turned it down)

(edited to say - yes you can tweet and blog your choices for a double entry!)

I was just today wondering how you were and where you were with your break from blog land. House hunting and packing and making life decisions I guess... I think the portrait cameo brooch is my favourite. Thanks for the giveaway. Lou.

Mama Mogantosh said...

I like the cameo too - beautiful.

But don't cry Dawson! You will have a career after - oh, shit, wait.

Cry, Dawson. Cry bitter, salty tears.

1. How do you review a rug? "Yes, it performs the task of protecting the floor from spills in an adequate fashion" ?
2. Nice to meet you! I found you through a tweet about your competition and am now hooked on both your store and blog!
3. I love the hummingbird pendant bestest.
4. I will totally tweet this. Are you on twitter? I can't seem to find a link.

I got one of those weird rug emails a while back too which I deleted.
I also deleted a free tickets to the zoo offer for earth hour which I totally thought was a scam... only to find out it wasn't a scam! Damn, bum, bugger,poo!

Sammy said...

Ahahahahah I LOVE that picture of Dawson...

I've seen it used in forums all over the place, it's so appropriate for your post today.


Sammy said...

Hm... can we get two entries by bloth blogging AND tweeting? The range at the store is really mind bogglingly fantastic, by the way. No. Really.

Without a doubt the best screen shot ever. I need that in a flash card to use in testing moments.

Thanks for the awesome laugh.
